What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Sunday Sweets Falls For Fall

While I fully embrace early Christmas decorations, let's be real: it's still Fall, and I really, really, really love orange.

[By Cherry Blossom Cakes in England]

[whispering] It's so beautifuuuul.

 

Not to mention we don't get all the pretty leaves changing here in Florida - much less the cooler weather - so I've got to find ways to celebrate Fall everywhere I can.

[By Sue of IC Sugar in Australia]

Ohh, plus a Disney tie-in? BONUS.

 

There's so much to love in this one:

[By Dragons & Daffodils Cakes in Wales]

The top looks like a glowing candle! Plus the nearly-bare branch topper, the leafy frame, and the ombre orange bottom? YASSS.

 

Loving the peek-a-boo scene in this one:

And here comes the rare exception to my "no naked cakes" rule:

[I can't find the baker - help?]

This could almost bring me around on naked cakes, y'all. :D I like how the bottom looks like a giant whoopie pie - and all those leaves and acorns!

 

You don't see many grays or pale blues in Fall designs, which is a shame, because look how pretty:

[By Angela Penta Cakes in Italy]

The orange really pops with this! Plus those Wonderland checkerboards have me swooning.

 

Proof that we need more purples and bright yellows with our orange cakes:

[By May Bakes Cakes in the UK]

Right? Those flowers bring the whole thing together and make it sing.

 

Speaking of flowers, here come my favorite kind:

[By Maria Valjuk, but I can't find her website. Anyone know it?]

ORANGE POPPIES. Heaven, you guys. Heaven.

 

Detouring from orange for a moment to show you one of the prettiest non-traditional Fall cakes I've found:

[By Magical Edible Art in British Columbia]

Those textures! Wood and rope and a sweet tarnished padlock, plus a peek-a-boo bear? It's just all so good.

 

And finally, back to orange with this incredible gravity-defyer:

[By Have Some Cake in the UK]

Gorgeous.

 

I hope you all enjoyed, and are having a lovely Fall weekend! Happy Sunday!
